Boulmerka and her family started to receive death threats, graffiti appeared denouncing her as a traitor and she was forced to move to Berlin to continue her training.

Caroline Moorehead's book, A Train in Winter, takes a different approach to the Nazi occupation of France during the Second World War.
In it she tells the story of a group of 230 French women deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau together in January 1943.
Only 49 of the women survived the infamous brutality of the concentration camp, but A Train in Winter is not a story about victims. Instead the book celebrates the spirit of resistance and friendship that persisted, despite the hardship, among these heroines of World War II.
